Quiet Isaac Jelfs led many hard lives, his escape from each wrapped in deep secrecy. In 1869 he reached Toronto and started his new life with his new wife and his new name. His great-grandson follows that journey, revealing Jelfs' well-hidden tracks and the reasons for his double life.
A young law clerk from England falls in love in 19th-century New York and reinvents himself in Canada. Quiet Isaac Jelfs led many lives: a scapegoated law clerk in England; a soldier in the mad Crimean War; a lawyer on swirling Broadway Avenue in New York. His escape from each was wrapped in deep secrecy. He eventually reached Canada, in 1869, with a new wife and a changed name. In his new home - the remote wilderness of Muskoka - he crafted yet another persona for himself. In Another Country, Another Life, his great-grandson traces that long-hidden journey, exposing Isaac Jelfs' covered tracks and the reasons for his double life.
